dollars in cuts in spending based on our withdrawal from iraq and afghanistan. that's just not real. but i believe the result of negotiations with speaker boehner, senator mcconnell and senator reid they could arrive at a conclusion because the major objection that a lot of us had was we don't want to increase taxes. the majority leader reid has already made that concession in his proposal. >> schieffer: senator, the thing that i wonder about is i think the congressional leaders on both sides are ready to make a deal but what i wonder about is can the followers go along with the leaders or will the congress stumble into some kind of default here despite the best intentions of the leaders on both sides? >> i believe they can and will. how soon is... i'm not clear on. it may require some kind of a warning shot. for example, watch the markets tomorrow, the financial markets around the world. i believe that the american people have very different views about what we're in, but the major view is disdain and even larger than that is that they want us to sit down and agree to something because th
to afghanistan as a member of a ranger helicopter assault team. on may 26th, 2008, sergeant petry and his unit was in afghanistan, part of the rugged mountainous region near the border with pakistan that's perfect for hiding out in. sergeant petry's unit was assigned to make a risky daylight raid on a compound why u.s. intelligence said a top al qaeda commander was hiding. the moment the helicopter landed they came under fire. within minutes as they moved into a court yard in the compound a machine gun round went through both of his legs. he was bleedly badly. he nevertheless aided another wounded soldier leaving him to take cover behind a chicken coop in the courtyard. he did this with severe injuries to both of his legs. sergeant petry launched a grenade in the direction of the enemy fighters, who were shooting at the rangers. that provided enough cover for a third ranger to join them behind the chicken coop to evaluate the wounds. an enemy grenade exploded in the courtyard. it further hurt the ranger that he was helping and the third ranger. a second grenade thrown by the energy fighters la
on jobs in baghdad, kabul, kandahar, in other parts of the iraq and afghanistan. and the irony of course is that we are being told that we are in this terrible crisis, when the republicans brought out a military bill that increased the military by $17 billion, gives more money to iraq and afghanistan, and i have to say i am very nervous that the president might agree to keep troops in iraq next year, which is longer than george bush wanted to keep them there. so, yeah, i think we can in the short-term save a lot of money by bringing the troops home with no negative job impact. but to get back to your question, what mr. bernanke said correctly is, yes, over the long-term, you should have a plan for deficit reduction from both higher taxes in my judgment and spending cuts. but in the short-term, if you were to do that, you would slow down the recovery. and that's why it's a timing issue. >> in terms of what you just said there about defense cuts, and what might be possible in this congress, i feel like the things that i have heard from republicans that seem like they have sort of silver li
in the afghanistan war. last year, abdo took the unusual step of complaining to tv networks. among them, al jazeera. >> i do not think the afghanistan or the iraq war is justified islamicly. and i do not think, and believe, that i can participate in any war that the u.s. army partakes or involves itself in. >> reporter: sources tell abc news, military officials were concerned about so-called radical same, abdo has been overheard making. he was also known to talk about anwar al awlaki, who is hiding in yemen and believed to be plotting attacks against the u.s. many consider awlaki america's number one enemy. still, despite those suspicions, abdo disappeared and went awol on the fourth of july. police now know that he came here to killeen, texas, and checked into this hotel. and tuesday, he took a dtaxi to this gun shop, guns galore, the same store w wre the alleged shooter bought his weapons in 2009. about beau bought six canisters of gun powder, three boxes of shotgun ammunition and a mag sooeb for a semiautomatic pistol. >> he arrives in a taxi, okay? that's -- that's flag number one. he purr chac
years of distinguishedservice. today was all about a moment in afghanistan when petry was severely wounded, shot in both legs, looking at a live grenade that could have hurt his fellow soldiers. abc's john donvan on what he did. >> reporter: above and beyond. that's where leroy petry went in may 2008, afghanistan, his seventh tour of duty. these pictures, from before he found out what he was made of. with the true sign of that today being in all the ceremony, a certain discomomrt at the attention. >> to be singled out is very humbling. >> reporter: perhaps, yes, for a kid who used to get into fights and who almost failed in high school, but out there, picked up a live enemy grenade to toss it away to save his comrades. it cost him his right hand, but he's alive, rare for medal of honor winners. but there's also this. leroy petry decided he's not done. and when he reenlisted, he took the oath with his right hand. his new one. john donvan, abc news, washington. >> and we want to honor him, too. >>> and, still ahead on "world news," one thing you may want to buy to help create america
, that's clear, isn't it? so there he was, he was making his 15th trip to afghanistan and it was while he was over at camp leatherneck that the marines asked him, okay, if there are a bunch of pentagon cuts, how is that going to affect our equipment and stuff like that. and wherever he has gone so far during this particular swing through the country of afghanistan, the troops are saying are we going to get paid? and he's saying, i don't know. just know this whatever you are owed you'll get paid eventually. you know, and this is how this works down. if we do, talking about if we go into a debt ceiling where we can't pay our bills technically which i don't agree with anyway, let's say, the president has the tablt to decide who gets paid when. clearly the debt is going to get paid first. china and saudi arabia are paid before our military, as bad as that sounds, that has to happen, so our borrowing costs don't go through the roof and then pay the military and social security, and if you dodonn tt order, give the department of education money first, it's the president's fault. it's not congre
in afghanistan via youtube. but now her buddy justin timberlake has gotten his own youtube offer. a network of possibilities. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more americans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of new cell sites... for greater access to all the things you want, whenever you want them. it's the at&t network... and what's possible in here is almost impossible to say. that's how it is with alzheimer's disease. she needs help from me. and her medication. the exelon patch -- it releases medication continuously for twenty-four hours. she uses one exelon patch daily for the treatment of mild to moderate alzheimer's symptoms. [ female announcer ] it cannot change the course of the disease. hospitalization and rarely death have been reported in patients who wore more than one patch at a time. the most common side effects of exelon patch are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. the likelihood and severity of these si
up to the current wars in iraq and afghanistan and the not war. walter reed's doctors have also treated a number of u.s. presidents, lawmakers, and foreign leaders. in '07, a "the washington post" investigation revealed that many wounded troops had been living there in horrible conditions. two years earlier a government commission had voted to close the medical center and consolidate operations with the military facilities in nearby maryland and virginia. at a ceremony today, the army secretary john mchugh said walter reed has always been not just a hospital but an inspiration. >> here it's impossible to walk away without having been uplifted by the determination, the shear grit of those who are under the care of the professionals at walter reed. those warriors, those heros who have endured traumatic injuries and often horrific pain. yet, through all of that, maintain their fighting spirit, the spirit that has always been the heart and soul of the american soldier. >> shepard: the handover set to be fully complete by september the 15th when the state department and the district
from france tonight. >>> now, to afghanistan. we're getting an exclusive look inside that deadly attack, by terrorists at a luxury hotel in kabul. an american who was there, having dinner with his family hen it all unfolded, had his cam are in hand. and tonight, he shows abc's's nk schifrin, what he captured. >> reporter: it started as a serene tuesday night in kabul. ali omar, that's him there, filmed his family joking around. they sat outside the intercontinental hotel. >> by the poolside, having dinner. >> reporter: then, the shots started. first, in the distance. then, a little closer. and then, just as that police officer there, is walking away. >> they killed him. up close. after they hit him, they turned around, just started spraying. >> reporter: ali runs throughgh the dark. still filming. >> i said my prayers. if i die, i die. i'm watching the guy. he's just shooting in the crowd. i'm staring at him. if i can see him, he can see me. i ran and jumped the wall. there were about 16 of us on the other sid. >> reporter: they waited there. that's his father. that's his cousin. nobody
of whom asked the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, as he traveled through afghanistan, whether they will still get paid if the u.s. coffers run dry. he told them, "i honestly can't answer that." how can you even allow these soldiers to wonder whether they're going to get paid? >> i think senator mcconnell and i are both cefd that we're going to be able to come to some agreement with the white house and end this impasse. >> reporter: but, again, democratic leaders dispute that, and in fact, when house minority leader nancy pelosi was returning from the white house this evening, we asked her what she thought of mcconnell's aserks that they were close to a deal, and she said to us, "i don't even know what you're talking about. " russ. >> mitchell: let's talk about the tea party. where are the tea party members in all of this. >> reporter: most likely,erous, they're not going to be happy with whatever gets agreed tot last minute by the white house and democratic and republican leaders. that's because they're going to be looking to bring forward a coalition of moderates from both pa
to iraq and afghanistan before but never as defense secretary, that happened this weekend, he's only been on the job for 11 days and already those traveling with him say there's been an unmistakable change at the top at the pentagon. jim miklaszewski is traveling with him and tonight has an exclusive interview with the secretary. >> reporter: the new secretary of defense leon panetta surveyed iraq from a u.s. military helicopter today and was trou e troubled by the landscape below. troops scheduled to withdraw by the end of the are caught up again in the war. panetta told a gathering of soldiers today the killing must end. >> my first responsibility as secretary of defense is to make damned sure that we do everything necessary to protect you. >> reporter: panetta pressured iraq's top officials to send iraqi military officials out to hunter down attackers. in an interview with nbc news, he said if not, american combat forces would do the job. >> all i can tell you is i do have the authority and the responsibility to defend u.s. soldiers. >> reporter: this is panetta's second trip to visit
would be targeted for supporting the u.s. war in afghanistan. then after a norwegian newspaper reprinted cartoons of the prophet mohammed in 2006, once again al qaeda called for revenge. then last july, three alleged al qaeda operatives were arrested inside norway for plotting to hit targets there. but i have to say, there have been no claims of responsibility. u.s. officials say right now there's no solid evidence this is al qaeda. there's a wide field of suspects, including political radicals. >> schieffer: okay. well, thank you very much, bob. bob orr in washington. well, yes, it is july, and it's supposed to be hot in july. but it's hard to remember it being this hot. today the east coast got a full dose of the heat wave that's blamed for 34 deaths nationwide. in new york and atlantic city, the temperature actually hit 104. baltimore and washington saw 105, and it felt a lot hotter. here's jim axelrod. >> reporter: in the last week, 1,472 temperature records have been set or tied across the country. newark, new jersey, hit 108 degrees-- the highest temperature ever recorded there. >>
gets paid and what doesn't. that's causing anxiety from wall street to the battle fields of afghanistan. as the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen, discovered for himself today, nbc's jim wikachenski is traveling with him. >> reporter: here at the hot spots of kandahar, american soldiers and marines are still dodging bullets, rockets and road side bombs every day. amazingly, when they had a chance to throw questions at the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen, their number one concern was the ongoing debate back home over the debt ceiling. >> the checkbook is not unlimited. >> reporter: admiral mullen told soldiers at kandahar that if the talks failed they'd still have to fight but they might not get paid. >> there are plenty of you that are living paycheck to paycheck. so if paychecks were to stop, it can have a devastating impact and it can have a devastating impact pretty quickly. >> reporter: at camp leatherneck, mullen told marines given the state of the u.s. economy, all the services face a cutback in the size of the force, and maybe e
scott moore stationed in musa qala, afghanistan. he posted a video on youtube and asked mila kunis to go to a marine corp ball in november. >> hey, i'm sergeant moore, but you can call me scotty. i would like to invite you to the ball in greenville, north carolina. with yours truly. take a second, think about it, get back to me. bye-bye now. >> mila is out promoting her new movie and with some prompting from her co-star she's agreed to go. >> only a marine could pull that off. it has to be said. there's a lot of swagger going on. >> i met her recently and she's incredibly cool. she's really nice. i think it's so cool. that's really planning ahead on his part. very clever of him. >> men all over the country now sitting in front of their webcams making their videos about to send them out. >> no doubt about that. >> don't do it. >> thanks. >>> more to come. back to the serious stuff. did you see the interview with kidnapping victim jaycee dugard? in her own wards you'll hear what she faced for 18 years, mostly in the backyard. how she says you can triumph over tragedy. dr. drew joins us to
in afghanistan, that's not going to coerce me into voting for it. on the other hand, i do think that some of the few remaining serious republicans understand that they will get blamed for this. so i think there is some pressure to do that. one other point i want to mention, rachel, which deeply angers me, these are people, the tea party people, who came to be the constitutionalists, they are in the process of launching the most fundamental assault on the american constitution, fundamental principle we have ever seen, and that was majority rule. the great breakthrough in the 18th century was self governance. and if you read the constitution, the assumption is majority rule in congress. it's majority rule in the states. in no part of the u.s. constitution are you required to get more than a simple majority of both houses to do anything. there's a 2/3 required for treaty only in the senate. that was special with foreign powers. there's a 2/3 requirement to amend the constitution or to impeach someone. but for legislation everywhere in the constitution all you need is a majority, and these pe
or daughter, husband or wife is in iraq or afghanistan, might cost them their check if we get three or four or of six days past august 2nd. >> i heard you say earlier we're seeing a generational divide in the house right now, the results of a generational divide. >> no question in the republican party there's a huge generational divide. as gloria just noted, a lot of these 87 freshmen, they're not career politicians. they were car dealers, maybe they were prosecutors. some of them were farmers. they don't feel bebeholden to the speaker. they think the people telling them to compromise are the people who built the pile of debt, the miss we're in right now. they don't truss them. remember a lot of people are making fun of them. a lot of people say these crazy tea party party. why won't they compromise? they won the last election. the last time america spoke they sent these people to washington. so they think that's what they were sent here to do. now, maybe the public's changed its mind. maybe the president and democrats have convinced them otherwise. but they just in november won an election
in afghanistan and i spoke to a very senior norwegian government official and he described the man as a neonazi and they are finding it very difficult to believe this was just his work alone. this was a very sophisticated and coordinated attack, and in addition to the shooting, they think maybe two or three bombs in the city center and powerful bombs. the truck bomb from the building and friends i talked to in oslo say the radius went out to 1,000 meters that windows were sheeterred and they believe there was a second bomb not baitsment of the building where the prime minister's office was so very sophisticated and well coordinated attack. >>clayton: an attempt to assassinate the prime minister there who was expected to give a talk, today, at the youth camp where we hear reports that there could have been other bomb materials found at the catch, as well. when you talk about "naive." what do you mean? >>guest: very good and humble "for my people" and one of the best allies we have, but a very humble people. they have supported peace. that is home of the nobel peace prize and they never thought a
, and we were doing great things over there. >> the 19-year-old served in afghanistan on the scout sniper platoon and we are gla he is home safe and grateful to our troops, as always, this 4th of july weekend. >> those are the headlines and now we send it over to rick for weather. rick: the summer is feeling like the end of summer for so many. look how june shaped up for us across so much. a lot of texas, the hottest junes ever in midland. and miami, florida, the driest june on record. and tulsa, oklahoma, 29 days above 90 degrees and that ties a record. and now the drought monitor: a lot of drought across the southern area of the united states from arizona to florida and the drought now beginning to stretch across the mid-atlantic. we need rain. we will not get it. and now, a look at what we have for the day today, it is actually quite a nice day with showers down across florida, and hot across the plains, and 102 in wichita and in the west we will see a nice day, finally, the west has been cool, and 77 in seattle with warm conditions and hot across the southwest. and, dave, over to you.
the debt. you didn't vote for him, but the wars in iraq and afghanistan have required all this money. it is fair to say this is his problem? >> no, it isn't his problem. as a matter of fact, even though i don't think the administration has helped get us out of the recession, it's gotten much worse. i never say it's obama's recession. i talk about long-term problems. i talk about military changes back in the '70s and creating the anticipation i've had that we would reach this point. so no, it's been many administrations, it's been both parties. even go back to the people. there's a high demand by the people to have entitlements. then there are a lot of special interests who think that we should be the policemen of the world. there's a lot of blame to go around. as long as it's a blame game and a power struggle, it's power and blaming and a power struggle and that's why we don't get anywhere. my goal has always been to get the american people to ask what should the role of government be? should the role of our government be to be the policemen? should it be there to tell us how to run
eventually in iraq and afghanistan, about a trillion there. highly questionable. speaker boehner's plan has two steps in it. totals $1.2 trillion in cuts. has a six to nine month debt ceiling and cuts and another debt ceiling mechanism next year sometime.รง david, seems like the president is basically saying all i want, get this out of the way before the incomes election. in that interest i'll give you what you want, basically? >> the democrats, without, and republican. s have drawn a line in the sand. problem is, it's inside it's republican tent. it's basically up to the bedroom. saying, we'll given you cuts, and part of reid's plan is $1.2 trillion in defense and non-defense discretionary cuts. we don't know what the cuts will be. may be real cuts in real problems, that the president and other democrats care a lot about. they have basically yielded to republicans on a big conceptual point. linking, lifting the debt ceiling to spending cuts and -- >> two things republicans still want. a dollar for dollar cut in spending to match a debt ceiling increase and a trigger mechanism for a balanc
to army sergeant leroy petrie. he lost his hand while throwing away an enemy grenade in afghanistan, saving two other rangers. >>> mississippi's attorney general is suing the administrator of the spoil fund, accusing him of denying claims. >>> cindy anthony will not face perjury charges. >>> meanwhile, a professional team in texas is suing casey anthony for more than $100,000 for the money it spent. >>> and scherrwood schwartz died in hollywood today. >>> welcome back to "hardball." with the "news of the world," the scandal went to the top today. rupert murdoch, his son james and top editor rebekah brooks all summoned to appear next week before a british parliamentary committee. last night former prime minister gordon brown announced "news of the world" hacked his records. he also described his reaction to the 2006 "sun" newspaper report that revealed his son had had cystic fibrosis. >> in tears. your son is now going to be broadcast across the media sarah and i were incredibly upset about it. we were thinking about his long-term future. we're thinking about our family. >>> joining
savings based on savings on troop levels in iraq and afghanistan. >> well, interesting enough while they're calling the overseas contingency operation dollars phantom funds, anderson, you may know they used those funds and put them in their own budget that they've already voted for and relied on. >> so where do you see this going? what do you think happens tonight? what do you think happens tomorrow? >> well, of course, i don't know what's going to happen tonight. obviously the republicans are meeting with themselves to see whether or not they have the votes to pass what john boehner has offered as a purely partisan alternative. we were not involved in those discussions. we were not involved in the decisions. and it's interesting that even in their own party it is deeply factionalized, deeply divided paint, divided against their leadership, angry at their leadership, and a party that is divided itself has difficulty working with the president or working with us. and that's unfortunate. and the country is the poorer for it. and the image of america is poorer for it. and i would hope that
, well, 1.1 of that or more are phantom savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan we're going to end, anyway. those are not real cuts. and boehner wants to come back. it's complicated. i'm still hopeful we'll get something. i think the stock market going down 200 points today, while bad news for 401 k owners i think really did send a powerful message to the congress. you're really playing with fire here now. the markets are -- you thought monday the markets were complacent. they're no longer complacent. they're sending you a strong signal, buddy. get your act together or you're going to have real trouble. >> they can try and play the blame game. >> go ahead, gloria. >> i was going to say, they can try and play the blame game with each other, which i'm sure they will do. because once you pass a bill in the house the republicans can say, look, we've done it. we've done our work. once you pass a bill, a democratic bill in the senate, democrats could say we've done our work. but i think they're beyond that, anderson. because i think they will all suffer in the end if they don't ge
have spent in iraq and afghanistan war. so, how do we get a compromise? that is an enormous question because the senate bill will not pass in the house and the house bill will not pass in the senate. we spoke to one republican congressman who said he voted "no," and here is why. >> you hear compromise, compromise, compromise. compromise got us in the mess we are in. the conversation i amer worked about is in eight to 10 years when my 8-year-old daughter says dad, why do i owe so much money. that is what i am preparing to answer. >>clayton: and rush limbaugh saying early in the week he was saying the g.o.p. were being played like saps and in the end we would see a reid bill with president obama behind it and it would be the democrats' plan. yesterday he came out and congratulated conservatives saying the no votes deserve a round of applause. >> i want to say something to conservatives out there. i want to tell you how damn proud of you i am. because you made this happen. the conservative so-called media inside the beltway would have exempted anything. yesterday, the day before, and la
